Villa Elena is a beautiful Mediterranean home in a very private setting on Captiva Island in Florida. Villa Elena is located by Tween Waters and is just a 2 minute walk to the beach to the east and a 2 minute walk the west to enjoy the bay and boat dock. There are resturants and shopping within a short drive to the south of the home as well as a small general store and music entertainment performed nightly at the restuarants. The movie theatre is a short drive to Sanibel Island as well as Bailey's General store and a wide variety of restuarants and stores.
Other Activities: We enjoy eating at the Bubble Room and booking our deep-sea expeditions at Jensen's Marina. Ask for Jimmy, he is a fantastic guide. You can also book a shelling excursion at Jensen's as well and they can take you to a secluded beach for shelling. While you are here for your visit, take a drive to the Sanibel Marina and take the Sanibel Thriller ride. It's a high speed pontoon boat that takes you around to see the sights of both Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Have your cameras ready to snap photos of the dophins that come and play in the waves of the boat. I can't forget the manatees and the sea turtles too! The Shell Museum is a must see with all the wonderful kinds of shells found throughout the world. They will send your kids on a hunt to find certain shells, once they have completed their search, they will be rewarded by the hostess! The night life on Andi Rossi lane is great. Great food, fun, and atmosphere and don't forget to include a sunset stroll on the beach!
Golf: There are several places to work on your golf stroke. One of our favorites is The Dunes Golf Club located in Sanibel. It is a public 4 star 18 hole course with over 5,578 yards and a par of 70. Located only 12.5 miles from Villa Elena be sure to come to get your golf or tennis stroke on!
